I sincerely hope you're tongue in cheek there Mister Rob on Bob (eeeiiuuuuwwww! what disturbing image), cause this is the crap I live for now...well, okay, but still; it can't be any worse than yet another recommendation from 82 for BillyDL, or another "TJI" show review that with one word substitution was the same one I ignored the day before...if we're not here for the absolutely idiotic antics like sorting out if Bob's just Bob, or Bob's stoned, or Bob needs help (or gawd forbid, he's "on Rob"), why are we? I thought everyone decided just talking the DEAD (music 65-95) was just not cutting it...I know I did.

Excellent reply sir, and great pick too.
Very glad to have been there myself.
And I wasn’t late to that rock and roll show!

So that the brilliant subtlety of my post goes not unnoticed: Those lines from Lazy Lightning are ones missed by Bob at this performance, and to me they somehow seemed apropos with regard to how some of us are bewildered by the others of us not accepting the value of a particular era.

And for those who aren’t familiar with this show, and didn’t listen to BillyD’s link, Bob has some funny comments at the start regarding tardy band members.

You knew I was kidding right? Except for the part about liking to talk nonDEAD...but you knew that already too.

Yep, all in good fun Tell. I have a much greater appreciation for the early years because of all you misfits here- I think I am following the Elbow path. I even find myself agreeing with Cliff more often than not these days!

1974 is my new favorite year, but I still love the period of Aug 1980 through Oct 1982 (and throw in the fall tour 1983). And lucky you Vapors as this show was my first find on the archive (I think I put in a review back in 2004)

I dont mind the off topic stuff but feelings tend to get hurt with certain topics so I just keep my mouth shut although you (Tell) have always been a model for civility (except in the few instances someone has pissed you off- I can think of a few like Dan Healy, Skies etc)

Yes, I think that was esp true in my "excessive posting" era (hmmm, have I been here long enough to have an "era"?). And partly when I tried to play peace maker or whatever, and took it far too seriously. Although now, I have to admit, I feel free to take a pot shot, eg, at Bob here, that in the past I would've felt constrained to avoid...Yep, I am really that pathetic; actually worry about this place and what I post--but you gotta remember, I am not a New Age, puter competent punk like most of you youngsters and I really don't know how to act under these circumstances most of the time. Mostly.
